Leaking Disposable Vape

There are a lot of factors contributing to a leaking Disposable Vape. In general like other vape products, such as e-liquid, closed pods or refillable pods, a disposable vape should be kept in a room temperature and should not be exposed to direct sunlight for hours.

Pay attention to these points below should you consider to purchase one soon.

Temperature: Where do you keep it?

As mentioned before, disposable vape should be kept in a room temperature. An internal damage of the coil, liquid tank or liquid itself may happen if you are by chance keeping them above or under room temperature for a long period of time. If this is your first time buying a disposable vape, make sure you keep it where it safe and in room temperature.

Keeping the disposable in lower or high temperature may cause the liquid in disposable vape to freeze or overheat. Moreover, this can cause chemical breakdown that's making it changes color and/or in flavor. Who wants to vape a less tasty vape juice? 🥴

Air Pressure: How hard did you inhale your disposable vape?

This often happens not just with disposable vape, but also closed pods or refillable pods. Sometimes when you inhale it too hard, the vape juice is leaking from the mouthpiece as you suck it too hard before the liquid can even vaporizes. Another reason may be because the e-liquid inside the tank was over-filled and there isn't enough air in the cartridge or around the atomizer for vapor to form, so the formation of vapor forces liquid out the path of least resistance, i.e. into your mouth.

If it's leaking from the battery or just leaking out of the device when it's just sitting on the table or in your pocket, then the disposable is probably not sealed correctly. You need to throw it as soon as possible. Sometimes due to shipping, fell during delivery or mass production, this can happen in your disposable vape.
